Greetings friends of Love For His People ministry!
Before I jet off to India in a few days to teach 90 pastors about the importance of blessing Israel and the Jews (2 conferences, Feb. 11-20, 2020), I wanted to share this word with you.
On Friday I spent time with my 4-year old grandson, Levi, who is just a joy to be with. Even at his young age, he has already begun to be concerned about his size, as other kids have already started telling him, “You will be small.”
Of course, he wants to be big, “like his Daddy and Mamma”, he said. “And like you too, Grandpa!”
I spoke into his concern and reassured him that the Lord created him, and he can relax in that fact. Then I said to him, “I too was small when I was your size.” (True! Weren’t we all!)
We all want “to be big”, grow up fast, and then when we get there many look back and say, “Remember the good old days.” But I believe the days are here for us to be big in the Lord.
This depends on whose eyes we are looking through. In God’s eyes, we are already big. We are already there. We have grown up and we are called to put those years of preparation into the game.
With that said, I share this word with you about being Released To Do His Will”.
For some, you still might be thinking that you have to wait until you are “bigger” before the Lord will use you. Sure, there is always the time of growth, development, and maturity each year, but even during the first year of training Jesus had with His disciples, He sent them out into the field.
The Lord is releasing His people forth into their calling. Quit sitting back waiting for “the time to come” for you. It already has come. You need to put faith into practice. And then watch it grow bigger as you do, and doors open, that He will.
Be encouraged. Read Released To Do His Will and get on with being who you have been called to be in our Lord’s Kingdom. The world needs us right now!
Now also is the time to sign-up for the two events we are having in the coming months.GTE – Gathering Together Event April 3-4, 2020. The Body of Christ unifying!
Also coming July 10-11, 2020 is the Aliyah For His People event, with our Israeli friends Nissim and Hadassah Lerner and Kokeb Gedamu joining us from Jerusalem. So come on!
Details for both events are below. Register now before the fees go up.
And as for Levi, the Lord has “big” plans for him, even if he comes in a “small” package. It is the size of the heart, not the outside vessel. He will be quite the soldier in God’s army. That’s our Levi!
Ahava and shalom,

Released To Do His WIll by Steve Martin
“While they were ministering to the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” Then, when they had fasted and prayed and laid their hands on them, they sent them away. So, being sent out by the Holy Spirit…” Acts 13:2-4, NASB
With a show of your hand(s), how many of you have ever wondered, “Why did it take so long for me to do what You put in my heart to do, Lord?” As in, I wanted to do this since I was 10 years old, 24, 30, and even 55. Why so long?
Do you know what His Holy Spirit said back to me?
“You had to go through several things so I could trust you when I actually let you do them now.”
Isn’t that a good Father? One who trains us. Grows us. Prepares us. Shows His faithfulness along the journey, and then releases us. To do His will.
Remember telling your child as they were growing up, asking and asking to do things, and your wise response to them was, “When you are grown up, you will.”Let me say this as clearly and as loudly as I can, in writing.
Many of you are now being released to do His will. Not tomorrow. Not 10 years from now. But now.
You graduated from the 12th grade. You had your boot camp training. You succeeded in getting the 4 and 8-year degrees. All in the Lord’s timing. Now you are ready.
The doors are opening. The provision is coming. The preparation has been completed. Jesus is sending you out just as He has always done, after the time of being with Him, learning His ways, knowing His heart, and equipped to be His ambassador to the world.
How long did it take Moses? Joseph? Jesus (Yeshua) Himself? And let us not forget the time Paul had in the desert.
As I am, your hair may not be colored with the darker color now that it could be. (I want to be careful here so as not to offend those who do cover up the silver and gray!)
When people see you, they may now see the wrinkles, or don’t quite understand the memory-filled mind banks that take a bit longer to retrieve information stored over 60-70 years. Yes, it does take longer to go through all those mind data files.
Or if you are as Timothy was and Paul had to encourage him, writing, “Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith and purity, show yourself an example of those who believe.” 1 Timothy 4:12, NASB
You too have been through the “training and preparation” years, and even if some may think, “She is not old enough yet”, He says you are.
The time has come. We are being released to do His will. I encourage you to do so.
The world awaits the risen Church, the believers in the nations who are called by His Name and who will respond accordingly. The nations need to see His Light, His Glory, His Healing Power, His Life. Let it come through you as you walk it out in His power and grace.
Love For His People ministry with Steve and Laurie Martin in Charlotte, North Carolina USA
As non-Jews, Gentiles, goyim, Christian Zionists (whatever label we have!), we began the ministry Love For His People in April 2010, to stand strong for the Jewish state of Israel. In this world, with nations continually becoming more anti-Semitic daily, including our own USA, we have been called, as the prophetic word was spoken over us, as a “scepter for Israel.” Ministering for 10 years now!

The Lion of Judah Roars by Steve Martin
“Thus says the LORD, ‘I will return to Zion and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. Then Jerusalem will be called the City of Truth, and the mountain of the LORD of hosts will be called the Holy Mountain.’ Zechariah 8:1
Our Lord Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach, promised before He left earth the first time, from Jerusalem, Israel, that when He returns the second time it also will be to Jerusalem, the city that has His Name written on it.
He is not returning to New York City, Moscow, Beijing, London, Paris, nor Chicago. He is returning, as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, to Jerusalem, the Golden City, the Holy City, the City of Truth.
The Lion of Judah is coming back, to rule and reign over the nations, setting up His kingdom, made up of Jews and Gentiles that have acknowledged His Kingship and know Him as their Redeemer, the Savior of their soul.
The following chapters speak of the life that we can live in the here and now, as we await His return. We are not looking for the “escape out of this hell”, raptured away before the Great Tribulation as we have been so badly taught since the late 1890s. Jesus Christ, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, is seated on His heavenly throne, but His soon return will be made known.
Now is the time for us to see what He is doing, how He is doing it, and “get on board” as Bob Dylan sang in the 70s. We are working while there is still day, to accomplish His plan and purposes for our life and the nation He has placed us in now.
Anticipate, prepare, be about the Father’s business, even as Jesus did. That is what we are called to do. And then we will see the Lion of Judah ROAR!
On its release the Kindle version made the Amazon #1 list for NEW Israel Travel Guides!
